in some states trying to get the message for him. bill clinton is continues with the florida event. president obama probably made the right call to come back. it wouldn't look good if he continued with that event down in florida if people are pounded by rain. all attention will be on this storm for a while, especially on the east coast, so he has a chance to get out there and be in front of the cam ras. we don't want to talk aboutfall politics in a natural disaster, but it will give him a chance to respond and look presidential. >> mitt romney had to cancel three events in virginia. the latest poll out of the state. he's closing the gap, although the president still has a four-point lead. how do you proceed if you're mitt romney? he doesn't have an official role, so is whatever he does open to criticism, or is it -- do you even morph through a political lens? where does mitt romney play through all of this. >> he can campaign in states not adversely affected by the storm. he can stay in ohio. i don't think there was any downside to spend more time in ohio and put in homilies in the
's blaming global warning and bill clinton says electing romney is worse than hurricane sandy. what's wrong with your party? >> well, you built a case, i'll say that, mr. prosecutor. i will also say that, in fact, mitt romney during the campaign said that, you know, he would cut funding for fema, homeland security, the people that have come to the aid of those in new york, new jersey, those that have been hard hit. >> no. he said he would give it back to the states, juan. wait a minute. excuse me. there's a proposal here, if you look at the details of pages 94 , 96, the white house's see sequestration proposal includes cuts for fema for $900 million if you want to get into tit for tat here. >> i'm saying not only did he said he would accepted it back to the states, he said ideally it would be up to private enterprise. >> wait a minute. in his own sequestration, $900 million in cuts for fema. let's not get into this. i think both guys are doing what they're supposed to do here, but the reality is, dana, is that, you know, either you listen to what the weather reports are. government's not go

in these waning days of a very close campaign. though he's not on the ballot, former president bill clinton is very much in the spotlight this fall in all sorts of ways. he talks about it this morning with rit a braver. >> president bill clinton. reporter: he may be the most active former president in history. >> thank you. reporter: but he worries about what will happen when his wife steps down as secretary of state. you haven't seen that much of each other because you're traveling and she's traveling. >> it's one of my great fears. i'm afraid i'm going to bore her to death. >> reporter: ahead on sunday morning, keeping up with bill clinton. >> osgood: christopher walken is a real character who has played some real characters over the years. what is this veteran actor like in real life? with tracy smith this morning we'll find out. >> reporter: he scared us half to death. and killed us with laughster. now, christopher walken is going to make us cry. you don't do anything terrible in this movie. >> no, no. i'm really good. i'm a very nice man. >> reporter: we take a pause with christopher w
wag going to launch his campaign. we knew this was going to be a big moment with bill clinton rolling out the big guns, if you like, and that was all canceled rather suddenly just as we woke up. so it was really strange knowing he was flying back to cope with a crisis while the rally went on and the normal things you hear at these rallies, the political campaign was going on. and the storm was mentioned by bill clinton but really not heavily. only in passing. and i think people are obviously talking about it to a certain extent. it's not in the front of their minds. what it does politically, conventional campaigning has ceased. it takes the two candidates off the media. i don't think people will be interested in them anyway. the normal style of campaigning has stopped. i don't mean politics has stopped. i think this is an important political moment. but the normal stuff of campaigning is over for a few days at least. >> bridgette kendall in cleveland, ohio. ohio only on the edge of hurricane sandy but right at the center of america's political storm. what do they think the impact on m
clinton picked up the slack and held that rally now. now we know that bill clinton will be in seven states in the coming week. how much is that a help to the obama team? >> well, without putting too fine a point on it you can imagine the situation in which that helps quite a lot. bill clinton having received better reviews at the democratic convention than the sitting president. bill clinton is hugely popular in the democratic base. so getting those crowds out is important because in the states they take them from the events to the polling places and you grab them and you say, come knock on doors with me this weekend. spend more time volunteering to get these votes out. so it's important that the gathering function of these events continue to happen. and with bill clinton being a big draw he's the best surrogate barack obama could have in these crucial states. >> now, bill clinton was in connecticut yesterday and he had this to say about the storm. he said we're facing a violent storm. but it's nothing compared to the storm we'll face if you don't make the ri
canceling plans to attend a rally in florida with bill clinton and instead headed back to the white house to monitor the storm from the situation room. he canceled an event in green bay, wisconsin scheduled for tomorrow. >> the last thing the president and i want to do is campaign and get in the way of anything. the most important thing is people's safety and health and property being saved here. >> the former president, the unofficial secretary of explaining stuff, took to the stage in the sunshine state solo. republican mitt romney will campaign today out of the storm's path in the battleground state of ohio yesterday offering these words for those in sandy's way. >> i think that right now some people in the country are a little nervous about a storm about to hit the coast, and our thoughts and prayers are with the people that find themselves in harm's way. >> what remains to be seen is how this october surprise will impact an election that is now just eight days away with early voting already under way. we want to get straight to the latest update, and for that nbc news meteorologist d
will be here tomorrow. bill clinton last night and this morning. there is a lot of surrogate traffic and part of that is because early voting is under way right now and goes on through tomorrow. and both sides are really trying to energize people and get them out to the polls during this week. >> brianna, i'm looking behind you. just quickly peek over the back of your shoulder to your left, air force one just came right into a perfect view for us. thank you very much. but i want to ask you, this was a campaign stop in green bay that was really supposed to happen tuesday, which the president cancelled because of the storm and emergency work that he needed to do. so what did they do? did they go on with the event as scheduled and then add this one, or have they just rejigged the schedule? >> reporter: they sort of adjusted it a little bit. i think it was an evening event was the idea on tuesday. but for instance, charles woodson, who, yes, did make that very generous $100,000 donation -- or announced it here to the red cross, he was going to be at the event tuesday, and he was at the event here
for relief efforts for the people that are going to be impacted by the storm and bill clinton raced out there to politicize this by saying electing romney is worse than hurricane sandy. i guess its fitting considering this has been the nastiest campaign run by president civility and company that we've ever seen. >> yeah. incredible. well, i think there will be three impacts from the storm politically, one which will help obama. any time there's an emergency like a blizzard or a flood or a tsunami or something, the president gets to play rescuer in chief, something bush failed to do with hurricane katrina. i'll bat obama dons his rain coat and his galoshes and shows up helping some wisconsin town sand bag against the lakes or something, and i think you'll see a lot of that. i think that that could prove very effective. that's a very good strategy that many, many governors and some presidents, even, have used. if romney is smart, he'll match him sand bag for sand bag and be out there himself doing it, so that it's a break-even situation. the worst would be for romney to criticize obama an

of them. is bill clinton turning into the party's go-to guy to pick up the slack of what the president obviously can't be out there doing because his attention is needed for what's taking place with sandy recovery? >> sure, if you can't have the president or the vice president, certainly bill clinton, former president clinton is at the top of the list. he is well loved and respected here in ohio and throughout much of the rest of the country, and i think he's doing a wonderful thing for the president and understanding the circumstances of this storm, but, thomas, i think both campaigns have now come down to a get out the vote effort. i don't think people will be much influenced by tv ads and going forward. i think we are in a place -- whichever campaign is most successful in actually getting their people to the polls and that will be the campaign they think will win. >> what do you think is taking place in ohio right now with the fact that mitt romney is not having campaign events and as chuck pointed out he's shifted into more relief-type efforts and people are sending me tweets that
-- >> and by the way, someone is making it political. former president bill clinton actually warning about what will happen if mitt romney is elected. now, he was in connecticut campaigning for chris murphy running for senate against linda mcmahon in a hotly contested race there. here is what clinton actually said on sunday, quote, we're coming down to the 11th hour, we're facing a violent storm. it's nothing compared to the storm we'll face if you don't make the right decision in this election. so, you know, actually saying, bringing on romney as president of the united states will be more devastating than the full wrath of mother nature. >> yeah, but clinton can do that, he can be the attack dog and pit bull and do those things, but romney and obama can't say those things. >> i agree. clinton is going to be who he is. joe biden can't go out there and do it, he's the acting, now current vice-president, but bill clinton can play the fear game. this problem is the institutional left. they are looking at an election swinging tornadwards romney. charles: bill clinton is considered. >> considered a
of the things you learn when you breathe about alcoholics is that a child like bill clinton begins to feel like he has the responsibility of bringing feelings to that family, of redeeming it and creating on her honor where there is dishonor and so he basically sets out to be the person who will rescue him in the family. he is an incredible student at the front of his class. he becomes very honored -- active in boys nation. he gets nominated to go washington as the boys mitigation candidate for u.s. senate. goes to washington. he is already already six feet tall. he strides to the front of the line when they go to the white house is the president kennedy and when kennedy finishes his speech, bill clinton goes forward and gets his picture taken alongside of john kennedy. he is so proud, he is so proud and he is already dedicated to the idea that he's going to be the person is going to bring complete honor to the family. by the age of 17 he is already planning to be elected attorney general and then governor of arkansas and president of the united states. this is something which everyone had knows

. his name was bill clinton. when he was first elected, he asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little more, so we could reduce the deficit and still make investments in things like education, train, science, research. and guess what? plenty of folks running for congress at the time said it would hurt the economy. that it would kill jobs. and if that argument sounds familiar, one of those candidates back then happens to be running for president right now. and it turns out, their math was just as bad back then as it is today because, by the end of bill clin totoclinton's turn am created 23 million jobs. the biggest surplus in our history. wisconsin we know the ideas that work. we also know the ideas that don't work. because in the eight years after bill clinton left office his policies were reversed. the wealthiest americans got tax cuts they didn't need, and that we couldn't afford. companies enjoyed tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas, insurance companies, oil companies, wall street given free license do what they pleased. folks, at the top got to play by a different set of
of these winds have died down. >> one of the events that the president skipped was this ohio rally with bill clinton where vice president joe biden stood in for him. >> folks, i know you're expecting the real president, the present president, reverend, i just want you to know, he asked me to express his regrets for not being able to be here but, you know, he's doing the job a president should be doing. [ cheers and applause ] and first and foremost on behalf of the president, i want to thank all the first responders throughout this country. you know, there are folks from all over america heading to my part of the world to the east coast to help now. they're coming from all over. >> well, mitt romney and paul ryan have canceled all of their campaign events tomorrow and at their last event in ohio romney asked people to help if they can. >> i want to mention that our hearts and prayers are with all the people in the storm's path. sandy is another devastating hurricane by all accounts and a lot of people are going to be facing some real tough times as a result of sandy's fury and so if you have
to manipulate media coverage? >> to quote bill clinton, they think you're stupid. it's more a play for the media being stupid, saying look here's a chance to even it up, the press loves to even it up and pennsylvania is a way -- >> are they trying to get obama to put resources into pennsylvania? >> it is part of it. there is an element of a head fake to see can we shake something lose here, can we see movement in numbers, can we make them spend time there, maybe once you're playing those kinds of games you know that your path to 70 is limited. as you said you better get ohio because pennsylvania is garbage. >> when people tune in on tuesday night and they see you lawrence o'donnell reading these election results. >> no, they're going to see rachel maddow. i will be sitting somewhere nearby being very quiet. >> there's a funny thing where they're going to look at the bottom of the screen and see these votes coming in, it's going to start at zero and go p. but that's an artificiality. he has what looks to be a billing lead there and that is concrete. that's not polling. that's ballots. >> part of

, michelle obama, bill clinton. their campaigns have continued to run advertising. we've seen solicitations for contributions not to the obama campaign but to the red cross from that massive email list that barack obama has. the campaigns were up and running. they're still doing all the things they normally do. there's a little more sensitivity in the states that are affected by the hurricane but they can't really afford to pull out, to push the pause button. >> ifill: democrats have been saying that mitt romney during the republican primary debates may have said that he would actually cut back on fema which is not as unpopular as it once was. >> he said he wanted to move as much of that responsibility to the states and to private contributions as possible. so he's getting hit for that right now. what would mitt romney's fema look like? would it be as well funded as the current organization? there's about $7 billion in the bank right now. if mitt romney and republicans were in control in congress there is a question as to how they would handle disaster relief. generally speaking they've not
